Hurricane Matthew postpones Saturday night Sprint Cup race

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) Hurricane Matthew has washed out Saturday night's Sprint Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway and led NASCAR to schedule a doubleheader Sunday.

Rain and wind from Matthew have doused the area the last two days, so NASCAR called off Saturday night's Cup race. The Xfinity Series race scheduled for Friday had already been moved to Sunday.

The Cup race will start at noon ET on Sunday and air on both NBC and NBC Sports Network. The Xfinity Series race will begin at approximately 4:30 p.m. ET on Sunday and air on NBCSN.

Kevin Harvick won the pole Thursday night for Sunday's Cup race, while the lineup for the Xfinity race was set per the rulebook. Kyle Larson will start on that pole.
